New Zealand is known as Middle Earth (Средиземье)
for its Lord of the Rings (Властелин Колец)
trilogy. New Zealand born Peter Jackson filmed the three films
in various locations around New Zealand.
For him, choosing New Zealand to shoot (снимать)
his three Tolkien films was logical. It was not just because
he lives there, and the capital city Wellington (Wellywood)
is home to his hi-tech digital studios and his film company.
It was because Jackson knew what other international film-makers
have been discovering in the last few years, that "New
Zealand is the best country in the world to shoot this film,
because of the variety of locations we have".
Jackson and his team found in New Zealand the most beautiful
areas. The rolling hills of Matamata became Hobbiton, while
the volcanic region of mountain Ruapehu transformed into the fiery
mountain Doom where Sauron forged (выковал)
The Ring, and Queenstown, New Zealand's adventure capital (столица
приключений), was the setting for numerous scenes including
the Eregion Hills, and the Pillars of Argonath.
Jackson's special effects team (команда Джексона
по спецэффектам) turned New Zealand's already impressive
landscape into a magical Middle Earth with the help of digital
computer wizardry (чары), adding
buildings and mountains where they have never been.
New Zealand's creative (творческий, креативный) talent came
from far and wide. Around 2,000 people were employed during
production. Kiwis ("киви", шутливое
название новозеландцев) team made armour (доспехи),
weaponry (вооружение), household
items, and 1,600 pairs of prosthetic (протезных)
feet and ears.
The Lord of the Rings was filmed over 274 days in more than
150 locations all over New Zealand. The use of conservation
sites and National Parks meant Jackson had to employ a specialist
lawyer to gain consent (получать согласие)
to film in protected areas.
In Queenstown, the site of heavy battle scenes in The Lord
of the Rings, up to 1100 people were on set (на
съемочной площадке) each day. To protect plants from
foot traffic, a massive amount of red carpet was laid.
